Apple says the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro feature "the hardest glass in a smartphone," and yesterday we saw the first test videos appear. Now, PhoneBuff has shared a new video on the durability of the iPhone 11 Pro Max over the Galaxy Note 10 +.

In the test, the Galaxy Note 10+ and iPhone 11 Pro Max were put through a series of drop tests at different angles. After the first drop, about 3.2 feet high, the glass back of the iPhone 11 Pro Max is almost completely shattered.
In the second test, both phones dropped off the side, and the iPhone 11 Pro Max performs much better than the Note 10+. This is because the iPhone 11 Pro has stainless steel edges, while the edges of the Note 10+ are aluminum.
The third test is a 3.2 ft drop in face and both phones crack at once. However, the Note 10+ performs much better than the iPhone 11 Pro Max, which pops all over the display.
Also today, CNET shared their own iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro drop test video, In this test iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro were put through four drops up to 11 feet high. Eventually, they came out intact in terms of bursting, but the rear camera of the iPhone 11 stopped moving:
Again, the glass did not break on either of the two phones – front or back. The rear camera of the iPhone 11 stopped working completely and just showed a black screen when I opened the Camera app, though the TrueDepth camera was fine.
More than anything, these drop tests really reinforce that endurance can vary greatly on a case-by-case basis. – a fabulous basis. For example, the two drop test videos we looked at yesterday gave very different results. Whether your iPhone 11 will crash in the wake of a crash depends on many different factors, and sometimes pure luck.
